APHYXION reveal video for 'Same Kind Of Different'

APHYXION reveal video for 'Same Kind Of Different'

“Meet Aphyxion, the new saviours of melodic death metal… one of the most exciting new bands in Europe!” 
Metal Hammer

Danish modern metal 5-piece APHYXION have unveiled a video for their latest single 'Same Kind Of Different' to coincide with the release of their new album Aftermath, out today via Prime Collective.

This latest track follows the band's previous singles 'Dark Stains On Ivory' and 'Destined To Fail', which have collectively surpassed 250,000 streams across all digital platforms.

Check out the lyric video here:

Produced by Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Aborted, Primal Fear) and guitarist Jonas Haagensen at Hansen Studios in their home town of Ribe, Denmark, Aftermath is an 11 track monstrous blend of aural savagery, which is set to make Denmark’s brightest hopes the fastest rising new band in Europe. Having honed in on their strengths: crushing riffs, gargantuan hooks and punchy song structures, their second album sees them step up their game to par with some of the biggest bands in today’s scene. This is impressive given that they are barely in their 20s.

Since forming, the band has played over 100 shows with dates on multiple European tours, a performance at Copenhell and one at Wacken, where the then 16-year-old members hold the record for being the youngest band to play the festival.

APHYXION have been nominated for “Best Live Band” at the Danish Metal Awards, the “Audience Award” at Royal Metal Grand Prix and also have been recognized by Metal Hammer UK, Metal Hammer DE and UK broadsheet The Guardian. Again, this is all the more impressive for such a young band.

Danish tour dates have already been confirmed, with UK/European dates soon to be announced.

Watch the first single, 'Mono Heart' here: 

Initially founded as a one-man project, Rave the Reqviem is now a 5-person behemoth, including the dual mother-son vocal team of Carola and frontman Filip Lönnqvist. The first album as a full group, The Gospel of Nil treads the fine line between industrial metal, heavy electronica and mainstream rock. Besides the album-opener 'Azalea' unveiled above and the single 'Mono Heart', The Gospel Of Nil features a further seven full-length industrial-metal masterpieces sandwiched between the album’s atmospheric intro and outro – endpieces.

Rave the Reqviem are a truly exhilarating and genre-breaking act, whose success with their debut self-titled album propelled the band to headline tours in Eastern Europe and Russia and festival appearances in Sweden and the UK. A smash hit, the album was the fastest and best-selling debut on DWA's roster.

THE ALGORITHM - Brute Force: Overclock DLC

THE ALGORITHM - Brute Force: Overclock DLC

Brute Force: Overclock sets out to be the first ever DLC expansion released for a music album. Inspired by the DLC gaming concept of an-add on that enriches the original experience with new features and story lines, Brute Force: Overclock expands the musical universe created by the full-length album Brute Force released 1 April 2016. 

Check out the Overclock video here:

This is what the THE ALGORITHM mastermind Rémi Gallego has to say: 

"Overclock is a journey through the dark and warm corners of the Brute Force concept. Writing an album with a consistent atmosphere sometimes mean some ideas have to be left off or just cannot be exploited to their fullest. This first DLC expansion is a means for me to dive into some specific aspects of my style that were a bit absent from the release, and experiment and develop them like they deserve. More than a collection of tracks that didn't make it on the album, this EP is an extension, an another perspective on the Brute Force story."

Brute Force: Overclock is released today 25 November via FiXT and features three brand new tracks + a Brute Force remix from fellow producer Drumcorps.


1. Idle
2. Overclock
3. Double data rate synchronous dynamic random access memory
4. Floating point (Drumcorps Remix)

Two bundles for the DLC expansion are available, one with added midi files and one with the midi files and poster:
